I am experiencing some strange behaviour with splot when trying to plot 3D-lines.
I attach the data file bug.table that contains data of four lines separated in two different z-levels
splot ´bug.table´ u 1:2:3 w l
It seems to produce different results. In one of the levels some artificial vertical lines appear connecting both lines. In the other level this does not occur. (See plots)
Furthermore, if I remove 1 of the data points, for example commenting line 46, the vertical lines are not there any more.
I have no clue, what is going on there.
I know I could use plot instead or splot with points, but this is not really what I want to do.
Do you have any advice how to work around this? ... because I guess it will require quite a while to fix it and patch it.
Best regards and thanks in advance,
By the way, I am using the 4.4 version in windows.

I had exactly the same problem under Solaris version 4.2.
